Why Revelstoke should be on your mountain bike bucket list this summer
Revelstoke’s growing reputation as a mountain bike destination is self-explanatory. With hundreds of kilometres of world class singletrack, lift accessed biking, stunning alpine riding, and a passionate mountain biking community, Revelstoke has it all. This summer put Revelstoke on your bucket list, and take advantage of new trails, incredible dirt, and world class riding.
Here are the top reasons to visit this summer:
1. Revelstoke Mountain Resort, featuring the longest flow trail in North America and brand new trails for summer 2020.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort opened its mountain bike offering in 2019 and kicked it off with a bang; Fifty Six Twenty is the longest flow trail in North America. It offers an intermediate bermy, flowy, poppy experience from start to finish. For 2020, they’ll be opening a selection of brand new trails, including down hill, to make the lift accessed options even sweeter!
2. Iconic alpine trails like Frisby Ridge.
If there’s anything the Revelstoke mountain biking scene is known for, it’s alpine riding. Biking along an alpine ridge surrounded by epic mountains is a surreal experience. The Keystone Trail is a technical trail that climbs up and down through stunning scenery and meadows.
Equally scenic, Frisby Ridge offers a flowy singletrack alpine experience, extending for 12 km along a ridge. For even more riding, add on the extra 5.7 km Frisby Vistas Trail. If you’re a strong rider, tackle all 40 kms of “The Full Teriyaki” by riding Frisby Ridge, Frisby Vistas and its adjoining downhill trail, Ultimate Frisby.
Treat yourself to teriyaki in town after! Keep in mind when planning your trip that Frisby Ridge is closed due to mountain caribou until July 15th.
3. Space to ride, rest and recover.
We can’t all ride non-stop, even if we want to. Revelstoke has great relaxation options. Head to our nearby hot springs to soak your sore muscles, take in a craft beverage at one of our breweries or distilleries, book a massage or just relax and enjoy our quiet, uncrowded mountain scenery.
4. Guided tours and top quality bike shops to make the most of your trip.
If you’re not sure where to start, book a trip with our local tour operator, Wandering Wheels. Their experienced guides will take you where you want to go or put together an incredible itinerary of Revelstoke’s greatest hits.
Need a tune up mid week? Revelstoke has four bike shops hosting all the big brands and top quality gear. These guys are experts at what they do, and will help setup your bike ready for Revelstoke’s conditions.
5. A strong bike community.
With an awesome local cycling association and a community that’s crazy for mountain biking, Revelstoke is a town for mountain bike lovers. In town for a while? Join a social ride with the Bikes, Beers and Babes or Pedal and Pint.
The Revelstoke Cycling Association is responsible for managing and maintaining most of the local trails. If you’re riding Revy, please make a small donation to support the club.
